While this might be the most obvious wonderful part about New Zealand festivals, it’s also probably the most important. Without the music, there would be no music festivals.
Music is a sort of international language, and unites countless unique individuals. There’s very few feelings that compare to swaying in a sea of smiling faces, watching a band you love jam one of your favorite tunes.
As we said before, music brings good people together. Every time we go to a New Zealand festival, we leave with more friends than we had before. Music and art create the sort of community where lasting connections and friendships are fostered. The wonderful people we meet make our experiences at New Zealand cultural festivals that much better. We can almost guarantee that if you show up to a New Zealand festival with a warm heart and an open mind, you will leave with countless new friends.
Inevitably, the creative nature of festival directors leads to beautifully crafted, fascinating venues. The amount of time and energy that goes into crafting an amazing experience is something we admire. Whether it’s stunning concert stages or collaborative art exhibits, the venues that come along with New Zealand holidays and festivals make us feel inspired and excited.
Dancing is an amazing way to release stress and relax your body. It’s hard not to smile when you’re dancing with a group of friends jamming to good music. We love dancing to any genre of music, and we love people who love dancing. Not only is dancing a
great way to express yourself, it’s good exercise and a great way to smile too.
In this case, the whole is certainly greater than the sum of its parts. When the music, the people, the smiles, the dancing, the place and the art all come together, the combination is unmatched. New Zealand celebrations and festivals are more than just music, they are a meeting place for kindred souls. They are a place of joy and laughter and creativity. Most importantly, the experience of a New Zealand festival leaves your heart full and your mind inspired.
We hope to see you amongst the crowds of smiling faces soon.
